Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Clean and Sanitize Before Working

Before you begin creating your recipe, make sure that the area you will be working in is clean. This will help protect your product from contamination, which could ruin your recipe. Plus, this preparation strategy will prevent you from running into space issues as you are working. First, remove anything in your work area that isn’t necessary for your project. This will give you the space you need to finish this craft. Second, make sure everything is sanitized. Otherwise, you could end up with dirt or debris in your completed pink salt scrubs. So, the safest way to create this recipe is to be prepared first.

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Setting out the Clamshell Containers

Another way to be prepared is to set out the packaging. Before you begin, retrieve the five clamshell containers you will use when creating this recipe. You will need these clamshells quickly after you whip up the entire mixture. So, it will be very helpful to have the packaging immediately available. Otherwise, your soap scrub may set up before you add it to the clamshell containers. While the recipe would still be okay to use after this point, it will be near impossible to get the mixture into the clamshell containers. Not getting the mix into the clamshell containers will hinder the appearance of your product, as you will not be able to add the pretty topping to the scrubs.

Also, you want to get the salt ready before you melt the soap. Melt and pour soap will set up quickly, so it is best that you have everything ready. So, weighing the salts before will provide you with more time to work. Now, weigh out 40 grams of the Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Coarse Ground in one of your bowls and weigh out 315 grams of the Himalayan Pink Salt Fine Ground in another of your bowls. These will be set aside for later use. The finely ground pink salt will be used as the main exfoliant within this salt scrub mixture. This will help remove any dead skin. Also, the coarsely ground pink salt will be added to the top to provide both the lovely appearance and some extra exfoliation.

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Preparing The Melt and Pour SoapPink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Preparing The Melt and Pour Soap

Next, you will be melting the soap for this pink scrub recipe. So, cut up and weigh out 170 grams of Nature’s Garden’s Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap. Add this soap to a microwave safe bowl. You will want to melt the soap in 30-second increments, stirring in between as it is melting. Stirring as you go will disperse the heat more evenly so the soap will not overheat as you are melting your soya milk soap. Once all the soap is in liquid form, then you can stop heating the soap. After it is melted, it is time to move on to the next step.

Now, we are going to add the oils to your recipe. These are the oils that are either beneficial for your skin or scenting the scrub. So, take your melted soap and quickly add your oil ingredients. First, weigh out and add 20 grams of the NG Sun and Sand Type Fragrance Oil to the soap. Mix this into the soap well. Now, add 15 grams of the Coconut Oil 76, 57 grams of the Sunflower Oil, and 40 grams of the Sweet Almond Oil. Again, stir well to mix these ingredients into the melt and pour soap.

Next, you are going to be adding the salts you have already weighed. Be sure to move quickly as you move to this step because your soap will begin setting up pretty fast. Now, pour in the Fine Ground Himalayan Pink Salt that you have already weighed into the soap and oil mixture. You will want to fold the salt into the mixture quickly. However, you want to make sure that the pink salt has been incorporated well enough so that everything seems evenly mixed together. You don’t want the melt and pour soap to set up, but you don’t want the mixture to be uneven in areas.

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Packaging the Mixture and Adding the ToppingPink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Packaging the Mixture and Adding the Topping

Now, you are ready to package up your mixture by filling your clamshell containers. Begin by spooning the mixture into the clamshell containers. Then, you will use your fingers to work the pink salt scrub into each of the six cavities. You will want to pack everything fairly tight. Also, make sure to leave a little bit of room on top so that you are able to close the clamshells after adding the coarse pink salt on top. You don’t need much room, but you shouldn’t overfill the clamshell containers. After each of your clamshells fully packed, you will be adding the coarse ground Himalayan pink salt to the tops. So, place about 9 grams of the coarse ground Himalayan pink salt onto the top of each clamshell. Make sure to spread this out evenly over the entire top of the filled clamshell containers.  Finally, press gently so that the coarse pink salt sinks in slightly and stays in place.

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Adding the GlitterPink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe Adding the Glitter

Now, you will add the shimmer to the tops of your nearly finished bath scrubs. You will less than a gram of both the Diamond Mica Pigment and the 24K Gold Mica Pigment. You will only be giving the tops of your pink salt scrub a light dusting with a tiny amount of the shiny mica dust. While you can dust separately with each of your two mica pigments, we recommend mixing the mica dusts before dusting.  We have found that this provides a more even dusting that prevents the colors from looking separate on your finished products. So, you would mix together about a tiny bit of the diamond dust mica and a tiny bit of the 24K gold mica together for a pretty mica blend that is lovely and shimmery.

Next, you will be adding a light dusting to your recipe. You can either do this with your spoon or a shaker. If you do not have a shaker or have another way to dust your solid salt scrub, then you will be fine using a spoon when applying the mica. We chose to use a shaker to evenly coat the tops of the salt scrub with the mica mixture. Also, you can lightly shake a spoon of the mica powder over the scrubs to provide a dusting, as well. Any way that you choose to add the shimmery shine, just make sure the sparkles are as evenly applied as you can possibly get.

Finally, your solid scrub recipe is complete!  After you have finished, these bath scrubs will be immediately ready to use! You can use these to wash and exfoliate your hands or you can use these in the bath for a whole body experience. Either way, this is a wonderful recipe that combines the clean fun of melt and pour soap with the care caring properties of a typical salt scrub. So, you are truly set with this bath and body recipe!

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe The Mineral Benefits of Using Pink Himalayan Sea Salt in the Bath

First of all, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt is enriched with many minerals that a healthy human body should have. This includes minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron, and so many others. Including this in a bath product can provide all the benefits, since your skin can absorb some of these essential minerals through your skin. So, using this solid salt scrub in the bath could provide you with a mineral soak, which would be beneficial for your health and your skin. Plus, this pink sea salt is a gourmet salt that is kosher, food grade, all natural, organic compliant, and has high levels of beneficial minerals. Meaning that this is very beneficial for those that will use this solid salt scrub in the bath!

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe The Detoxifying Benefits of Using Pink Himalayan Sea Salt in the Bath

Further, the pink Himalayan sea salt has even more benefits for your skin. Not only is this pink sea salt beneficial for mineral absorption, but the salt can be used to detoxify your skin. In the bath, the Himalayan sea salt from your scrub will dissolve in the warm water of your bath. This combination will create an ionic solution, which means that the solution will be able to draw out toxins from your skin as you are soaking.

Pink Salt Solid Scrub Recipe The Skin Hydration Benefits of Using Pink Himalayan Sea Salt in the Bath

Also, soaking in a bath of pink sea salt is great for hydrating your skin. This is because our bodies readily absorbing the Himalayan sea salt and where the salt is stored. Since the sea salt remains in the outer layers of the skin, it binds to water molecules. This prevents the water from escaping from your skin as easily, which will leave your skin more moisturized. Additionally, the pink salt in this solid scrub is beneficial for relieving skin issues. This lovely salt is useful for helping to heal issues one may have with their skin, such as acne, eczema, or blisters.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin, you will want to make sure everything is sanitized and ready to use for your craft. First, make sure all that the stove and counter top are cleaned off. This ensures that you will have plenty of room to create this scrub. Also, gather all of your equipment and make sure to sanitize every last piece. Further, consider wearing gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net to keep your skin and recipe safe throughout this process.

Margarita Salt Scrub Recipe Making the Double Boiler

Now, you will want to know how to create a double boiler before we begin creating this scrub recipe. If you already know how to create this melting contraption, then feel free to begin the recipe. However, those that aren’t sure how to put this together can read through a brief yet detailed instruction on how to create a double boiler with two household pots. Further, the double boiler is crucial to preventing your butters and oils from scorching, which makes it important to know how to make this device.

Initially, you will find your small pot and your medium pot. The larger pot will contain the boiling water and the smaller pot will contain the ingredients that you intend to melt. First, add about an inch of water to the medium pot to start. Then, place your smaller pot inside the medium pot. You will need to adjust the water level so that it is at least touching the bottom of the small pot, but the water can’t be high enough where it could boil over into the melting oils or butters. Finally, you can turn on the stove top and add your ingredients to the small pot.

Next, you can add these ingredients to your previously prepared double boiler. Make sure to occasionally stir as your ingredients melt to ensure that they don’t burn.

Then, add the 15 drops of the Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant. Mix the ingredients in this small bowl well enough to incorporate everything and create a paste consistency. Finally, allow the oils and butters to cool to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit and add the colorant paste to your melted oils and butters. Again, mix this well.

Also, you will be adding a few of the remaining ingredients to your mixture. So, weigh 5 grams of Optiphen Preservative, 5 grams of Vitamin E Oil, 121 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, and 20 grams of Margarita Fragrance Oil. Now, stir this mixture to incorporate everything that has been added.

Also, you should be mixing to incorporate as your pour. Once everything is mixed together well, move on to the next step.
